Will Discuss Withdrawal and

(I'nited Press StaTf Correspondent.)
New London, Conn., Sept. 1!). The
threatened rift in the Mexican-Amer-
n-iui iioiiiereuce appeared today to1
nave Ijeen closed, at least temporarily.
The American committee has con
sented to give immediate considera
tion to the withdrawal of troops and
to arranging for border protection. In
this matter the Mexicans have pledged
to send a force to replace Pershing's
!n the whole, the Americans feel
that there is no actual break ahead.
But the Mexican temper is such, mani
festly, thnt the border patrol and
withdrawal questions must lie decided
definitely, at once, else there will lie
trouble ahead for the commission.
The Mexicans have pledged them
selves to hunt Villa ''to the bitter
end." The attack on Cliihuiihua sim
plifies the problem, they say. Hither
to it has been a problem of locating
the bandit leader rather than fighting
him, mid now he believes he has re
vealed his whereabouts.
One big problem upon which the
world in general must pass is the sub
ject of the Mexican declaration of
aus and for-
Mexico will be more peiiceful bv rea
son of becoming 'Mess subject to out
side contentions," hence, arrunzn will
put ioth Mexican and foreign inter
ests ''on the same footing."

Dr. Richard C. Cabot, who is head
of the Massachusetts General Hospi
tal, has been writing for the American
Magazine, April and May, on the sub
ject o "Better Doctoring for Less
He says that "A new era has come
in the practice of medicine, but most
people do not know it yet. We have
begun to emerge from that stage of
medical work in which the doctor was
a peddler selling goods from house
to house, into the more advanced and
sensible era in which the doctor stays
at his nlace of business, like anvone
else who has goods to sell, and the
people who want these goods come
to him. The shop where he has his
goods to sell is generally called a
hospital and he lias associated with
him there a body of men and women
similar to work people, foremen and
managers of any industrial plant or
dry goods store. He has there some
beginnings of a satisfactory division of
labor and specialization of function.
Therefore, he can give the public a
much better article for less money.

is also true that the "family doctor does
